Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides.
–Junichiro Tanizaki


To contemplate is to look at shadows.
Victor Hugo


One is forever throwing away substance for shadows.
–Jennie Churchill


Words are but the vague shadows of the volumes we mean. Little audible links, they are, chaining together great inaudible feelings and purposes.
–Theodore Dreiser


In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don’t.
–Blaise Pascal


Beauty deprived of its proper foils and adjuncts ceases to be enjoyed as beauty, just as light deprived of all shadows ceases to be enjoyed as light.
–John Ruskin
